With headband: Nikola Jokic leads nuggets into the play
MVP Jokic led the Nuggets at night to Thursday to the 122: 109 on the Memphis Grizzlies and wrote history. Not because he acted after an early lace wound with a protective red headband. Not, because he was with 35 points and 16 rebounds again the crucial man on the court. No, the Serbian Star Center is now the only professional in the history of the NBA, which within a season with at least 2000 points, 1000 rebounds and 500 templates section. For the wages, there was the last remaining direct play-off place “on top” for Denver.
Let’s stay in the Conference. The Minnesota Timberwolves also gained thanks to the strong 49 points of Anthony Edwards, the 127: 121 against the San Antonio Spurs around the strong Viennese Jakob Pöltl (15 points, 17 rebounds) helped but nothing more. The T-Wolves must be as seventh in the play-in-round, can move there with a victory in the play-offs – and then meet the Grizzlies, which once again played Morant in the night of Friday without the injured boys.
Theis at the end in the bad luck
A swing in the east of the league: Daniel Theis trumped for the Celtics for a long time and collected 22 meters. However, under the dash was a 121: 127 against the Milwaukee Bucks and the loss of rank two of the Eastern Conference at the reigning champion. Theesis missed an important attempt in the final seconds directly under the basket.
Because the Philadelphia 76ers lost 114: 119 against the Toronto Raptors, the Celtics slipped in the ranking around the best places for the play-offs but at least not further back. The Miami Heat is safe in East through the results of Thursday. The record champion from Boston still has another game in the main round, the Bucks and the 76ers each two.
17 points of Moritz Wagner
In the absence of his brother Franz brother Franz, Moritz Wagner could convince in the jersey of the Orlando Magic with 17 points. For a victory, however, it was not enough for the waiter, the bottom of the table in the east underlined at the Charlotte Hornets clear 101: 128.
